Delicious Grilled Vegetable Panini Recipe April 8, 2008

Oh my gosh. We had the most unbelievable meal tonight!

California Veggie Grill Sandwich

While on Yahoo! today, I found this recipe for a California Grilled Veggie Sandwich. We decided it would be good and our expectations were WAY exceeded!


  1. 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  2. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  3. 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  4. 1/8 cup olive oil
  5. 1 cup sliced red bell peppers
  6. 1 avocado, sliced (originally called for zucchini)
  7. 1 red onion, sliced
  8. 1 small yellow squash, sliced
  9. 2 (4-x6-inch) focaccia bread pieces, split horizontally
  10. 1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese (originally called for feta)
  1. In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, minced garlic, and lemon juice. Set aside in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat the grill for high heat.
  3. Brush vegetables with olive oil on each side. Brush grate with oil. Place bell peppers and zucchini closest to the middle of the grill, and set onion and squash pieces around them. Cook for about 3 minutes, turn, and cook for another 3 minutes. The peppers may take a bit longer. Remove from grill, and set aside.
  4. Spread some of the mayonnaise mixture on the cut sides of the bread, and sprinkle each one with feta cheese. Place on the grill cheese side up, and cover with lid for 2 to 3 minutes. This will warm the bread, and slightly melt the cheese. Watch carefully so the bottoms don’t burn. Remove from grill, and layer with the vegetables. Enjoy as open faced grilled sandwiches.

We deviated from the recipe and cooked the veggies on the stove in olive oil and then grilled it on our panini sandwich press. I am in heaven!
